St Vincent de Paul

Last financial year the St Joseph's Oatley St Vincent de Paul Conference made around 60 home and nursing home visits and provided financial assistance to the sick, lonely and needy. The conference appreciates the support of Father John, the St Joseph’s School community, and all our benefactors in the parish. Meetings take place in the Marian Hall once each month (usually on a Tuesday morning) on a date that is published in the Upcoming Events section of the Parish Bulletin. Parishioners are always most welcome to attend.
